Whether they’re conserving the polar ice caps, or keeping a local bee garden in a healthy state, environment charities are doing some of the most important work there is. Saving the planet and its species for future generations is a huge task, requiring the input and commitment of like-minded volunteers.

Sponsored litter picking
Doing your bit by picking up litter in a local park, garden or any outdoor area really makes a huge difference. Recruit willing volunteers and get sponsored to go out in force and make a difference together. Take before and after pictures so that you can really show the difference of your hard work.
Lift sharing challenge
Have you thought about lift sharing with colleagues who you live near you or with parents on your school run? Try sharing lifts for a week, a month, or longer and get sponsored for your efforts. You could also donate a percentage of the money saved in fuel costs to your environmental cause. If lift sharing isn’t your thing then perhaps get sponsored to cycle, walk or use public transport to get to work instead.
Collect unwanted books and magazines from friends and family and hold a book sale to raise money for your environmental cause. Make sure that you recycle any that are in bad condition and that aren’t suitable for sale.
